Even though the doubles matches counted as individual points today in lieu of the ‘best two-of-three takes one point’ standard format, Austin Peay would have come out on top regardless.

Ristovski was one of two Govs to win in straight sets during singles action, knocking off Bray 6-1, 6-4 in the No. 1 spot. Sophomore Evan Borowski bookended Ristovski’s win, defeating Kyle Landrum 6-2, 6-2 at No. 6.

Mitchell defeated Stern 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 at No. 4, while Montenegro polished off Walden in a 6-7, 6-3, 10-6 battle at No. 5; both freshmen went undefeated on the weekend.

Junior Aleksas Tverijonas continued his unbeaten play, defeating Jack Joyce 6-7, 6-3, 6-0 at No. 2 to run his spring record to 6-0.

The Govs travel to Lindsey Wilson College next Saturday for a 12 noon match against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders.
